Just around this stretch of time before Daredevil hit Netflix, Marvel fans’ interest piqued for the live-action take on Matt Murdock’s beloved red suit. Granted, Jessica Jones doesn’t have quite the same following with her original costumed comic identity as “Jewel,” does Netflix’s next Defender series intend to suit up Krysten Ritter after all?

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Doctor Doom. The Joker. Red Skull. Lex Luthor. A solid villain can truly make a story and show that it really can be good to be bad. But, as it turns out, women exist also, and sometimes some of them do crimes too. Galvanized by this shocking revelation, I have compiled for you this list of the finest lady crime-doers that there are, in ascending order of badicoolness.
While the online criticism of Avengers: Age of Ultron scared Joss Whedon off Twitter, Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn still maintains a healthy social media presence, frequently interacting with fans and answering all matter of questions. As he preps Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in Atlanta, Gunn took to Twitter last night to answer all your pressing sequel questions, and revealed that there is a secret Guardians script that includes all the translations of what Groot is really saying that only he and Vin Diesel have, and that he’ll never tell you what or where that secret easter egg is.
Welcome back to another Agents of S.O.M.E.T.H.I.N.G., where we talk about all the things to like and complain about in this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

The cast of Doctor Strange continues to expand, as one more actor has joined the lineup of Marvel’s mystical superhero film in — surprise, surprise — yet another mystery role. Transparent star Amy Landecker is the latest addition to the cast, joining Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in what’s shaping up to be Marvel’s best cast yet.
The roster for Lego Marvel's Avengers is going to be one of the largest yet for TT Games' Lego series. With each passing entry, the developer tries its hardest to outdo itself, and it's not all that hard when you have as vast a catalog of heroes and villains as Marvel has built up over the years. TT Games has also always prided itself in being able to mix in a lot of the more popular characters, such as your Iron Mans and your Captain Americas, with some lesser-known deep cuts like Damage Control and Mastermind in the previous game, Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
With this upcoming entry, that same attention to detail on both sides of the character coin is returning. A lot has happened in the Marvel Universes, both comic and cinematic, since TT last dabbled with the brand, and today's new character reveals show that there's not a single stone the developer won't unturn if it makes for a fun new addition to the roster.
The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?"

After Edgar Wright famously parted ways with Marvel on Ant-Man, Adam McKay was briefly in talks to direct before Peyton Reed signed on for the job. Although the timing didn’t work out, McKay still did some work on the script with Paul Rudd, and it’s been reported that Marvel is still very much interested in having him do something more substantial in the MCU. According to McKay, he might be returning fairly soon.
